Research is often first communicated via conferences and their proceedings. Presenting at conferences is a valuable way to publicly discuss and obtain feedback on your research.

Finding Upcoming Conferences:

Search Papers Invited for detailed information and deadlines about calls for papers for forthcoming conferences and special issues of scholarly journals. These calls for papers are issued by professional bodies, journal editors and other conference organizers in all disciplines and from all over the world.

Many disciplines have their own website, for examples of discipline specific sites use a search engine.

Social Networking

Social media allows researchers to connect and engage with other research communities around the world. There are a number of tools and strategies that researchers can use to be competitive in the academic research environment:

- Twitter

- Blogs

- Email lists or discussion forums

- Online scholarly communities

(These are just some of the ways in which you can promote your research!!)
